Peterborough United man may not play for the club again after season-ending injury blow

Peterborough United midfielder Jeando Fuchs is set to miss the rest of the season through a serious knee injury, manager Darren Ferguson has confirmed.

Peterborough United have been without Cameroonian midfielder Fuchs for much of this season. He was cast to the sidelines with a thigh injury early in the campaign and has only recently made his return to the side.

The 26-year-old’s second start came in the League One win over rivals Cambridge United at the weekend. However, Fuchs didn’t come through the derby day victory unscathed, being forced off just after the hour-mark after a challenge from Michael Morrison.

Now, as quoted by the Peterborough Telegraph, Posh boss Darren Ferguson has said Fuchs looks to have suffered a serious knee injury.

As a result, he is unlikely to play again this season. A full diagnosis is expected on Friday, but the early signs aren’t good.

“We don’t have a definitive answer on Jeando, but it’s a bad injury,” he said.

“We will know for sure on Friday, but if I had to guess I’d say he won’t play again this season.

“It’s a huge blow for him and for the team. He had come back into the side and played really well, especially at Blackpool. I started him at Cambridge ahead of Hector because I felt the game would suit him more and he did well again.

“Jeando has been really unlucky this season and I saw him playing a big part in the last two months. We needed to get some rest into Hector as he is likely to be away with Cyprus in the next international break and the number of cautions was becoming a problem for him.”

The report notes that with Fuchs unlikely to play again this season and his deal up in the summer, it could be that he’s played his last game for Peterborough United.

Who is this?

 

A rough season for Fuchs

As Ferguson highlighted, this season has been a really tough one for Fuchs. After one long-term injury, he looks to have suffered another just after his return. It leaves Peterborough United without a valuable asset in the middle of the park too.

Fuchs is a well-rounded and combative midfielder who made a good impression in the Championship during Posh’s stay there. Many would have had him tipped for a big impact in League One but with others favoured and injuries hitting, his impact has been limited.

After an injury-hit season, time will tell what action Peterborough United take over his future. If his deal is not renewed, Fuchs may not play in a Posh shirt again as his expiring contract frees him to search for a free transfer move in the summer.
